M&P 9mm Magazine

Top 20 S&W M&P Shield EZ 9mm Extended Magazine

M&P Shield (in 9mm or .40 calibers) features a 3.1-inch barrel, 6.1-inch long and 0.94-inch wide, with a weight of about 19 oz, when it’s unloaded. The M&P Compact is a little heavier and cut down for easier concealment. Shield mags are usually interchangeable, but M&P 2.0 gun mags are not always replaceable between various models.

Why do we need M&P Shield 9mm Magazines?

S&W Shield 9mm is a recognizable pistol at the American market of concealed firearm carry, being a good alternative to Glock and Springfield Armory handguns. The best capacity for S&W Shield 9mm guns is a seven-round flush fit magazine and an 8-round extended mag with a mag sleeve to allow avoidance of mags over-insertion. The Shield Plus capacity is upped from 7 and 8 rounds to 10 and 13 round mags.

Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm 10-Round Magazine

View on OpticsPlanet

Specification

Gun Model: Smith & Wesson M&P 9
Magazine Capacity: 10 Round

These compact mags are designed for the full-size M&P handguns (in original M&P and M&P 2.0 models), and don’t fit the M&P 2.0 EZ shield 9mm. The 10-round magazines come with rigid polymer base plate extenders, which allow them to fill the full-size grip. The steel body of the magazine makes it sturdy but lightweight. The follower and follow spring move smoothly and compress well. These mags can be perfectly used for reloading, as an extra magazine or spare one.

Pros
  • Factory quality and flawless operation

  • Rigid metal and polymer construction

  • Loads smoothly due to the coating, which allows the mags to slick while removing from the firearm

  • Ejects cleanly and falls out with no snags

Cons
  • Not a full-size magazine, as it uses a polymer base plate grip filler
